"Total person" assessments have a myriad of uses. Our tools measure the job-related qualities that make a person productive - Thinking and Reasoning Style, Behavioral Traits, and Occupational Interests. It is completely online and convenient and easy to use. Employee assessments assist in placement, promotion, self-improvement, coaching, succession planning, and job description development. These are effective because they compare the qualities of your job candidates to the attributes of your most productive employees. The patterns tell you whether candidates are like or different from your top performers. A study published in the Harvard Business Review concluded that Job Match more accurately predicts job success than any of the commonly accepted factors, such as education, experience, or job training.

We help you solve these challenges:

The "80/20 Rule" says that 80% of all products and services are sold by just 20 percent of the salespeople. This presents a challenge to sales executives who direct teams of salespeople.

An analysis of several sales organizations reached the conclusion that about half of the people in the study lacked the behavioral characteristics required to effectively perform the duties that sales jobs call for. They should never have been hired for sales positions in the first place. The study found that of the remaining 50%, half had the potential for success in sales, but were not hired to sell the right kind of product or service. The study concluded that only about 25% of those working in sales position have a good match with the work they are doing.

We have a tool that provides a means of selecting people who have the five qualities that make salespeople successful: Competitiveness, Self-reliance, Persistence, Energy, and Sales Drive. It also predicts on-the-job performance in seven critical sales behaviors: Prospecting, Closing Sales, Call Reluctance, Self-starting, Teamwork, Building and Maintaining Relationships, and Compensation Preference.

Solves these challenges:
  • Poor sales production

This is done by measuring an individual's: Persistence, Self reliance, Energy, Sales drive, Competence, Prospecting, Closing sales, Call reluctance, Self starting, Teamwork, Building and maintaining relationships, Compensation preference

Before hiring, how much do you really know about an employee's attitudes about integrity, substance abuse, reliability & work ethic? Employee surveys reflect the harsh realities of your applicant pool:
  • 56% of working people admit they have lied to their supervisors
  • 41% say they have falsified records
  • 64% admit using the Internet for personal reasons during working hours
  • 35% have stolen from their employers, by their own admission
  • 31% abuse drugs or alcohol

Recent industry estimates indicate that nearly 80% of computer crime is committed by "insiders" at an estimated annual cost ranging from $100 million to as much as $1 billion. More than one-third of all companies declaring bankruptcy last year cited that they were "stolen out of business" by their employees.

Employee theft and fraud averages about $2,000 per employee each year from your bottom line. Increasing lawsuits have made it extremely difficult even illegal for you to ask important questions to determine the integrity of a job candidate. Reduce your risk and select the best employees by using a scientifically designed assessment tool that evaluates job applicants attitudes for integrity, substance abuse, reliability, and work ethic.
